Dean & Britta
New York City, NY
Today TSOI is featuring Dean and Britta’s August 2008 Galaxie 500 set at the Zipper Factory. To regular readers, TSOI is known for taking on pet causes (See successful TSOI campaign to pressure Axl Rose to release Chinese Democracy). In this case TSOI is making good on a threat/promise that was posted back in August. The long and short of it was simply to dangle the full recording as an incentive for Howard Wolfson, a TSOI reader, to make sure that his employer, Fox News, not muck up this election like the last two. Based on my gathered intel and preliminary analysis, the withholding of this Dean and Britta show was indeed instrumental in getting Fox News to toe the line a bit and in getting Obama elected.
I do apologize for not being faster in posting the show. Naturally, I was tempted to post this on the Wednesday after the election but then I was seized with a cold shudder that made me reconsider: the thought of Howard passing this recording to one of his nefarious colleagues. This beloved recording falling in the hands of consummate tools like Ralf Reed and Karl Rove is a risk I still can’t take lightly.
Anyway, here it is and we thank you all for your patience. Enjoy.
